Overwatch is perhaps one of the world's largest games over recent years, and the team-based PVP shooter has risen to new heights in recent months, as fans await any news pertaining to its sequel, Overwatch 2.

Speaking of Overwatch 2, which the game has seen some delays in recent months, the first PVP beta is approaching soon and we're going to run over how you'll be able to check it out!  

Overwatch 2 PVP Beta: Dates and How To Sign Up

The Overwatch 2 PVP beta is going to be players first chance to test out the gameplay of the game and get a feel for how the game is going to differ from the first OW.

This beta has long been rumored and it's now been confirmed to begin on June 28, 2022 by OW2 Game Director Aaron Keller in a developer update video posted a few weeks ago.

If you're interested in checking out the beta, to get a grasp of the reworks of numerous characters, along with potentially checking out the brand new Heroes in Overwatch 2, then you're going to need to follow some steps.

The new opt-in web form is now available on PlayOverwatch.com/beta is slated to stay open until June 28 unless we hit our projected maximum server capacity earlier. We’ll select a small group of players when the beta goes live on June 28 at 11:00 AM PDT and will steadily add more players over time as we ramp up capacity, with the first waves of larger access grants planned to begin on July 5.

Our goal is to provide access to ALL players that opt-in to the beta by no later than July 14.

Players who purchase the Overwatch 2: Watchpoint Pack on a platform on which the beta is available will be granted immediate beta access as soon as the Overwatch 2 Beta launches on June 28 at 11:00 AM PT, or whenever the Watchpoint Pack is purchased after the Beta kicks off.

Please note that if you are playing on a PlayStation device and opting in through our website, you will need to select the region in which your PlayStation Network account was created. If you do not select the correct region, you will not be granted access.
